We are a bunch of socially active people, and The Igniters is the manifestation of our efforts to promote different art forms and its integration in our education system.
We believe that our education, due to its proclivity to overemphasise academics, is not dynamic enough to cope up with the change that is happening with the advent of the 21st century. By relegating art forms to the margins, our students are losing out on important skills like creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration etc.
The Igniters, through its carefully planned programs and campaigns, wants to change this.Therefore we work to promote disciplines like theatre, photography, creative writing among masses. Our target is not only the students but also the teachers and parents, as only with the help of every stakeholder we can bring the much-needed equality in the education system.
But a handful of people, despite their best efforts, cannot bring about change. As the initiative concerns students mostly, we want to reach connect to as many of them as we can. For this purpose, we need efficient, dynamic student leaders who can work as connectors and help us promulgate our mission to the world.
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for motivated individuals who can work with us as campus ambassadors or want to be a part of the founding team of The Igniters in their college.
